A once in a lifetime experience is on the line for some Wichita students.
Robinson Middle School's orchestra was one of only nine invited to attend and perform at a clinic in Chicago this December. The catch? It's not free. The trip costs about $90,000.
The students worked during the summer at a variety of fundraisers, and raised about $30,000. They hope to make up about $50,000 by winning a grant from Pepsi Cola, but they need to finish in the top ten of the Pepsi Refresh program to do so. They are currently in 15th place, and the Refresh competition ends Wednesday night.
